What is the Undergraduate Trauma Research Training Program?
Undergraduate Trauma Research Training program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Education for Undergraduates (REU) program, a collaborative venture between Syracuse University and the State University of New York at Oswego. The program is directed by Brooks B. Gump, Ph.D., M.P.H.,
Professor of Public Health at Syracuse University, and co-directed by Karen Wolford, Ph.D.,
Professor and Department Chair, Department of Psychology, SUNY Oswego and includes
other outstanding faculty from
these institutions as well as SUNY Upstate Medical
This program for undergraduates is designed to improve access to research experiences for groups typically underrepresented in research through the creation of a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site.
The program is purposefully structured to span one full year. First, students
will attend an intensive four-week summer program on site at the SUNY Oswego campus involving coursework, mentored student-faculty interactions, and the development of a research project. This program takes place June 3-28, 2013. Participating students receive a $3,000 stipend
for attending this summer session. Room and board are provided free of charge,
as needed. The month-long immersion program takes place on the beautiful
lakeside campus of SUNY Oswego. Out-of-state Veterans are also eligible to have travel costs to and from Oswego covered by this program. Please contact us regarding the potential for bringing family to stay with you as well.
Second, students are expected to continue their research under the mentorship of REU faculty during the Fall semester.
Finally, students are expected to
present their research at a national or
international conference in Spring,
2014. The travel and registration
expense for the conference is provided
to the student through this program
Although this program is designed primarily for veterans, we accept a limited
number of non-veterans with an interest in trauma reasearch.
